Global Run Challenge Profile: Julie likes to run along the Seine River in Paris when the city sleeps
RUN THE WORLD: 33-year-old Julie Delle Donne Voisse works at the reception of a Nice Parisian hôtel. She started running before her 30th birthday. "I wanted to prove to myself that I could do something "athletic", even though I have never been a fit girl," says Julie. "I started with a 10-15 minute run." After a few weeks she could easily run up to a hour. Running is very important to Julie. "Taking time for myself, is good for body and mind," she says. "It’s free and accessible anywhere, just need shoes and a few free minutes. I tried other activity but I never had this freedom." Julie is married and has a seven year old boy. Across the street from the hotel where she works is the Seine river. "I like running in Paris, along the Seine early morning when the city sleeps, or late evening in public gardens to admire the city," she says. Besides training, Julie also likes to run races and looks forward to collect the medal and hang it on her board! Why did she enter this challenge? " Running is an individual sport but we share so much between runners. This challenge is a good motivation around the borders." Julie has posted 16.16 miles so far for the Run The World Global Run Challenge. "I met Julie on our trip to Paris in May," says Bob Anderson. "I was impressed by the passion she has for running. I told her about our challenge and she signed up right away."
